Eastman

John collaborated with noted pickup designer Kent Armstrong to design a humbucking pickup that covers the complete tonal spectrum, and makes this guitar sound as good plugged in as it does acoustically.

The finished product is one of Eastman’s best performing Jazz guitars. The ebony fretboard is seamlessly finished at the edges. The set Humbucker routed in pickup allows a player to perform with minimal feedback and a full fat warm jazz tone with the clarity and chordal note separation that you would expect from a full carved hand carved archtop. Responsive and gutsy are attributes combined masterfully in this fine instrument, which allow this instrument to be played with a full attach with a pick, or gently with the finger tips. This is one of Eastmans best guitars that can do it all!
